June 17, 1915- August 4, 2015
We sadly say goodbye to the Best Mom, Granny “Goose” and Friend there ever was. We will miss you always but you will be in our hearts forever. You made it to 100 Years Old just like you said you would. You were always there to lend us a helping hand and did so with such love and graciousness never asking for anything in return. You were always so sweet, kind and patient and independent to the very end. We loved your mischievous sense of humor and beautiful laugh.
Mom was predeceased by our Dad and husband of 65 years, Charlie, our brother Bob and two sons-in-law Gord and Larry. Mom leaves children Ray (Marg), Shirl (Don), Jack (Colleen), Joan (Andy), Ken (Mintra), Donna (Dave) and many grandchildren and great grandchildren who were blessed to know you.
Mom was born and married in Saskatchewan and moved to BC in 1942. She was an excellent cook and worked hard every day of her life. She loved her family and we were first and foremost in her life. She put all of us ahead of herself and made our lives so much better and richer. She truly was Mother of the Year in our minds.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff in the Special Care Unit at Glacier View Lodge for caring so kindly for our Mom for the last two and a half year. You made her feel so special and loved and we can’t tell you how much we appreciated that. You are awesome.
So long Beautiful Mom, until we meet again.
